9:00 am
is really is september. take a look at our map. satellite radar composite showing you that we have clear skies over the area. hardly any clouds to talk about whatsoever. just a few that are drifting off to the north of us, like our camera is drifting off around here in the studio now. but it's going to be a great day. here is a look at current temperatures. 66 this hour at dulles. 66 at baltimore. 69 at washington. officially at national airport. 67 at fredericksberg. and 66 degrees to the north at frederick. so as we move through into today we're going to see the winds pick up. right now they've picked up between 10-15 mile-per-hour winds but we expect to see them gusting as high as 25 miles per hour before the day is said and done. and here is a look at your forecast. sunny skies, windy, much cooler. our high today only 78 degrees.
9:01 am
yesterday we hit 96 degrees. wow, talk about definitely a big change in the forecast for you. it will get cool tonight, temperatures only into the 50s. so grab a sweater if you are heading out tonight. but other than that, not bad at allm back to you. >> gwen, thank you very much. our top story this morning, new developments in the race for d.c. mayor. >> a new poll shows gray ahead of fenty by 7 points which makes the next few days even more crucial for both candidates. sarah simmons joins us live from the early polling place with more. >> reporter: good morning, allison and tony. like you said, the next days were important. and mayor fenty knows that, as he is behind in the polls, that he is asking for the top man in the country, president barack obama's endorsement. at this point the white house has not said anything. we did hear about it over the
9:02 am
last couple of days. now the clarus poll shows gray ahead and he is getting a growing lead over the past few weeks. and it shows if there is high turnout among black voters, fenty might lose this race. but one thing is for sure, both candidates are campaigning really hard just a few days out. the latest poll is more good news for vincent gray whose lead has grown in august since the latest poll. it is the third poll in a week to put gray on top. but there is still no clear-cut winner. >> it's clear that our message is getting out across the city. and for those who need to keep working hard. >> reporter: fenty did not make himself available for an interview with you issued a statement saying the only numbers that count are those in the polls at the end of the
9:03 am
day. we are out on the streets, going door to door. >> i've been reading about the polls but i think things will tighten up at the end. >> reporter: the poll does make clear that a city is divided between the block and white voters. fenty leads gray by white voters by a 68% margin. >> i have to improve in the city since he's been elected. i know his personality is important. and i don't know much about grade. >> reporter: hey leads fenty with 62% of african-american voters and gray thinks he knows why. >> we have to give people the confidence this is a city that cares about getting the training, have a job available to them. >> reporter: still the clarus poll said the election is in
9:04 am
their hands. >> if there was a candidate for race for mayor that could do that, it would be gray. but fenty hasn't broken the city. the city is thriving. >> reporter: and another poll that cake out yesterday in the city newspaper shows gray with on even larger number. saying that he is ahead with 39% for fenty. yesterday fenty campaign folks said he was unavailable to speak with us, but he did make mention that he is still working very hard over the next several days to try to pull this off and believes that he can. back to you, tony and allison. >> thank you. and now both have picked up
9:05 am
endorsements. the washington examiner supporting gray. they both joined us to discuss their respective positions. >> we respect some of the accomplishments of mayor fenty, but we have some serious problems of the appearance of corruption. i think the combination of the endorsements will have a real effect. i expect that fenty will still get a majority of the votes in our area and i think will they go down. and it's being decided on style and not substance. i drive from one end of the avenue to the other and i see something being built on every block. i see the city services working well. i see for the first time if a decade that i've lived here that things are working in washington, d.c., despite an economic downturn. >> the washington examiner's support on fenty was also based
9:06 am
on education form. the current cited gray's plan for pre-k system. and a deadly shooting in prince george's county. the victim was just 15 years old. investigators say justin pinal was shot and killed around 9:00 on tuesday night. the teenager died from his injury yesterday afternoon. anyone with information on the case is asked to call police. we have new information on the driver that plowed into two pedestrians and a restaurant in adams morgan last night. police say the driver is a 23- year-old woman from mitchellville, maryland. and they've charged her with driving while intoxicated. they don't know her name but she is due in court later today. firefighters say she hit two young women walking on florida avenue and then went into the front of the a restaurant near the 18th and u. streets just before 9:00. now to a story only on fox 5. prince george's county

9:29 am
toppled over by the severe wind. at least one person was injured. i heard there was even some damage done at love field in dallas. >> i wouldn't be surprised. >> this storm system is still -- people that tend to let their guard down when a tropical storm or a hurricane is no longer a tropical storm or hurricane, but it still can spawn very dangerous weather. >> and it's now producing flooding. and it's heading our way. with all of that wet weather. but let's begin with a look at weather headlines. because we have a different day today than yesterday. when we hit, believe it or not, 96 degrees. it felt like july in september. well today is a reality check because we are back to the schooler -- cooler conditions. and temperatures in the 50s tonight. you might want a jacket or sweater if you are heading out. tropical storm igor forms.
9:30 am
that's a new system. and rain in the forecast as we move through into sunday. so as we start out this morning, it's been a little bit of a chillier start to the day. skies have been clear, however. that's good news. ridge of high pressure in control. a few clouds skirting to the north of us, but other than that, not a whole lot going on. the wet weather is well to the south of us and that is what we're keeping a very close eye on. let's look at temperatures now though. as you can see across the area, we have 69 degrees at national airport. 63 at gaithersburg. and 63 at hagerstown. 71 at culpeper this hour. so we have that ridge of high pressure building in. and as i said to the south, we're going to watch what is going on with that tropical system or what was the tropical system. it's here. a lot of flooding but this is moving right toward us. and it will set us up for sunday and seeing a chance of rain, and maybe even a passing thunderstorm. but we have extreme drought conditions here and we really need to get this rainfall in here. so hopefully we won't have to deal with storms with it but
9:31 am
we'll have to see. but the wet weather will be welcomed. tropical storm igor and here it is. not really doing a whole lot. very disorganized actually. could possibly strengthen by the time we move into friday but right now not really doing much of anything at all. not expecting to be a threat right now at least any way as far as we're concerned. it is, however, a little bit closer to the cape verde islands. so a ridge of high pressure in control. plenty of sunshine as we move to the upper 70s today. it will be an absolutely stellar day. winds picking up so be prepared for that. so for today we're talking sunshine. winds pick up to about 25 mile- per-hour gusts. it's 78 for the daytime high. and here is a look at the five- day forecast. look at the sunshine i'm giving you. i'm so happy i can give you that. especially moving into the weekend. by sunday that's when we'll keep a look at the skies because we could see a thunderstorm. much-needed rainfall in the forecast then but temperatures will stay close to seasonal. so not bad at all. let's check in with allison
9:32 am
now. >> and you'll be happy that you did. a new season of judge jeannine piro premiered this monday on fox 5 and judge joins us to discuss news of the day and what we can expect this season and stuff from last season. i want to talk about these beautiful shoes you have on. >> they're painful. >> welcome back. >> thanks, it's great to be back in d.c. >> and even though you have to wear the robe, your personality comes through, funny at times, serious at times and sometimes i fear for you, because they're going to meet her in the parking lot because she's telling it like it is. >> and when you say that, meet me in the parking lot, i was a prosecutor and judge and d.a. for years and i'm concerned about those people but you obviously don't worry about it. but the truth is when we come into the new season, we have an emmy nomination under our belt, we're dealing with issues that i think are relevant and
9:33 am
pertinent to the viewers and it's serious to those litigants. and i try to approach it with a sense of humor and with my own life experience and this year we have a new bailiff. his name is keith. he's 6'8" and nobody is messing with him. and we have something new called on the docket. people will ask for advice about things like my mortgage is being foreclosed, i am being harassed at work and nice things like we want to get married. there is a couple that said we can't afford a wedding and so i'll do a marriage, they're perfectly legitimate. and we're tearing down the walls. and you'll see them before i come into my courtroom and after i render my verdict, i will give my uncensored opinion about what i just saw. and it's a lot of fun and educational as well. >> and although we might not have the same exact you can get
9:34 am
nuggets about things in your own life. >> first of all, women, when they loan money to a guy, you need to understand you can't buy his love and the reason he's borrowing from you is because a bang won't give him money and let him buy his own motorcycle or whatever it is. and there are life lessons. get a promissory note to loan somebody some money. but its all relevant stuff. cell phone bills. >> that kills me. >> don't put someone else on your plan. >> and i say so i put them on my plan. why? why would you do that? and former district attorney, former judge. but your life must have changed when the show premiered from what it is before. have you found now you can't walk down the street without people asking you questions. >> it is a lot of fun. i have to tell you. i try to use its same rules of evidence, hearsay, unless i really want to hear it.
9:35 am
but at the same time there is an educational component. and i've tried to make sure we follow the law. and the good news is there are no lawyers in the room and we do it with hair and makeup, which is so much better than when i was a county judge. >> and your show truly does stand out. and what do you think is the difference in do you think about that and be conscious of it. >> when telepictures called the president of the company and said we want you to do a court show and i looked at the phone and i said why. she said we just want you to be you. i just go out there and i have a few laughs and i'm also very passionate about some issues -- domestic violence. i started one of the first units in the nation. we've collaborated with the national domestic violence hotline and giving out information and resources
9:36 am
because as you peel back the layers of the onion, you see domestic violence and child abuse in a lease case. so if you dig deep enough you find issues that i care deeply about. so bottom line, i'm just me. >> and let's talk about one of the big issues and it's interesting because you have a preachner florida. and his church is 15 members and he's come out with this burn the koran day and it's gotten worldwide response. what are his legal rights to do this? someone wrote me and said there have been incidents when the bible has been burned so shouldn't he be able to -- what is the legal reason here. >> people have a first amendment right to burn the flag and they can do whatever they want unless they cross the line. but here is the problem. and if this guy burns the caron -- and i don't know why anybody
9:37 am
is focusing on this. let him go. and this is the word of their leader. and this is between americans and other individuals. americans don't get up set. but if you have the islamic fundamentalists, they take it seriously and react with violence. so does he have a right to do it under the law in u.s.? yes. and do they have the right to build it, just like in the area, is it proper? >> and why can't you yell fire in a building? >> because it causes people to injure themselves and get hurt and there is a predictable response. and there are people that say
9:38 am
it will. you remember five years ago when the danish cartoonist and there were people killed in demonstrations. it's a serious issue. but in america we pride more than anything the right of people to say and do what they will. we'll see what happens. i'm not sure we need this guy to burn the koran. we were victims on 9/11 to being extremists. >> judge, thank you so much. thank you for coming to see us. >> thank you. >> you can catch judge jeannine piro's show. we've been running the promos. >> thank you very much? and rumors are swirling that big al is up for trade. but as we're taking about haynesworth again, allen and shanahan are talking about it.

9:49 am
cool temperatures. and so does the climate fellas in the organization. so there are so many things in the atmosphere and it is so complex that sometimes it just takes the temperature change in the pacific, a few winds to kick up from the caribbean, the arctic wind to blow in. sometimes even volcanic ash can change what everybody expected. >> as my business, i tell people, we do the best we can to forecast but mother nature will do what she wants to do. and we'll get to the forecast in a moment. let's talk about some of the other stuff in the book. you cover current tastes and trends. what are you looking at for the next year? >> we're seeing more folks build tree houses instead of adding on. >> wait. you are seeing people building -- >> tree houses. >> is this in the book? >> yes. build a tree house all fitted out and ladies are getting mad for plaid.

9:51 am
you are thinking of doing the landscaping to get used to the idea of what it would look like. block out the snow. >> even paint it if you. >> i'm way ahead of you tony. >> that's great. so more snow this year. not as much as last year but more snow. >> we couldn't beat last year in, what, 500 yards. >> and there is astrology and all kinds of stuff we don't have time to get to. but it is on the stands now. the 2011 edition. go out and pick one up. >> great to be here. >> allison, back to you. are we ready for that winter? thanks so much. holly has been out reviewing the 18th annual arts on foot event. she joins us from the alternative art space. good morning. >> reporter: i want to review, on monday we talk you about the maryland renaissance festival. on tuesday we talked about
